We're under a winter storm watch. It begins Tuesday morning and ends on Thursday. As you can see, they got it wrong again. It's snowing like crazy here. The schools dismissed at noon. And the birds are flocking to the feeders.
The feeders are filled every morning at 6.
They empty fast in the snow.
We have the pantry and freezer stocked. Plenty of food for the birds. Good books to read and projects for knitting. Movies waiting on the DVR. Good thing, because we may be stuck for several days. Wisconsin roads are cleared quickly and even a large snow doesn't bring everything to a halt. But NC is not as well equipped to manage the snow. The shadows on the hills and curves will keep the snow on the roads far longer. Because of the steep hills and deep valleys, it will be several days before we can head downtown.
It remains to be seen how long the snow will continue. Is this early stuff all we will get? Or is the snow going to last even longer? Time will tell.
